I have never been to Maine, but I have a 24 hour window, a car, and a yen for a very Maine-ly experience. Because this will be part of a larger driving excursion, I will be restricted to Maine south of Portland.
I'm hoping to find rock reefs with assorted critters and plants, rocky beaches, classic Maine fare, and awesome classic Maine sites that I may not know are classic Maine. My research into back AskMe questions, guidebooks, oddball Americana, and the AAA Guidebook to Maine for Great Aunts has been particularly unenlightening about the first two (the better the sand, the better the beach coverage seems to be the rule of thumb, which doesn't help someone who is interested in the rockiness!).
